My Teaching Style
Each of our teachers take inspiration from their lineage of yoga and personal practise when designing their classes, so this is a little bit more about how I uniquely deliver each style of class:
Mellow Hum: a nurturing, deep yin or restorative practice, I aim to take you to a place of wonder, simplicity, and strength in both body and mind through meditation, pranayama, yin and restorative postures.
Unified Hum: focused on using the physical body as a way to delve deeper into the breath and body. Finding a way to sweetly and deeply explore the asanas, and to find the never ending connections between the body, mind, spirit.
Dynamic Hum: a strong joyful and creative vinyasa flow. Expect longer held postures, challenging balancing poses, twists, and unique transitions.
As long as I can remember I’ve been on a journey to find a way to help others. So much so that I ended up getting a degree in psychology and this same desire lead me to my yoga teacher training and eventually landing me where I am today. I love listening to people; hearing their stories, backgrounds, challenges and triumphs. I love helping people to shift their perspectives in any way that helps them to reach their utmost potential.
I strive to be open, compassionate, and generous. I’ve always been empathetic, sometimes to a fault, and over the years I’ve had to learn how to take care of myself by creating appropriate boundaries, whilst remaining opening. I believe this detailed awareness and sensitivity to my internal environment provides me with a platform to better tune into the experiences and feelings of those around me. I intend to live as authentically as possible, and often that means recalibrating my actions. I aim to speak my truths and to lovingly act on them. I trust that in doing so I’ll be lead exactly where I’m meant to be; to learn whatever lesson I need to learn, to find contentment, to lead a joyful life, and to achieve my highest good.
Past working experience before becoming a yoga teacher
Before becoming a yoga teacher, I worked as an associate broker for a real estate firm in Brooklyn for 5 years. I've held a multitude of jobs since the age of 15 ranging from theater usher to full-time personal chef on a fishing boat in the Bering Sea. Working with yoga and meditation is by far my favorite profession.
Pose that you hope is possible in this lifetime
I hope to one day be able to hold a handstand, and maybe even walk around on my hands!
Koh Tao, Thailand. This is where I met my partner and after two years we got married there in front of our friends and family. However, one of my absolute favorite things to do is explore new landscapes, cultures, and cuisines! So I'm always on the search for my next favorite destination.
